Anonymous asked: Hi. I don't want to be an imposition, and I apologize in advance if this comes across as a stupid question. I'm AFAB, but lately I have been feeling dissatisfied with my assigned gender. Some days, I really love being a girl, and others not so much. I want to try dressing more androgynously, but I have long hair and can't cut it off. (I don't really want to cut it off either, because when I do feel satisfied with my gender, I love my long hair). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
First of all, nooo such thing as a stupid question unless it’s “do you want pizza” because of course everyone wants pizza at all times but I digress
Okay as for looking androgynous woth long hair, it is totally possible. When my hair was super long I would tie it up and spin it over my head and hold it under a newsboy cap or something so it looked and felt like I had super short hair without actually cutting it (which I actually did eventually and highly recommend it’s awesommmeeee). You could also try picking up neutral clothes and mixing them with more feminine or masculine clothes to get the andro look. Most people think of thin ladies in tuxedos when they think androgynous but that isn’t all there is to it.
One of my personal favorite looks is hyperfeminine face (lotsa makeup) with super masculine clothes.
If anyone else has suggestions to help this anon out, let us hear ‘em!
blackcats-everywhere asked: I am exactly the same! (As supercalvin) Some days I want to dress androgynous but then I keep my hair sorta girly and medium length because most days I like to be girly, not super femme! I guess it's like fluidity between girl and tomboy.
That works :p
supercalvin asked: I'm definitely a cisgirl, like I feel like a girl and biologically I am a girl, but sometimes I like being masculine (wearing men's clothes and doing "guy" things). Is there a word for that? Or am I just gender fluid? Sometimes I think I'm androgyne, but with girl parts. Is that a thing?
Wait a second why did my phone autocorrect to that
It made me laugh so it’s gonna stay
But ummm any way
I mean if you just like dressing masculine isn’t that just a tomboy? I think I heard once someone saying that was an offensive term though but I don’t remember aghh it’s 3am my brain is fried
Maybe it doesn’t have a specific word and is just your style? I mean presentation =/= identity so idk umm followers, help me out here?

gqalien asked: re: the post about being a DD and binding. I have a friend who is in the same situation, they bind regardless of people suddenly noticing vanishing boobs. iirc they just say they're wearing a sports bra because they're fed up of having them in the way.
Good idea. What’s iirc?
Anonymous asked: transgendered is a passive participle. this is a common way of constructing adjectives. its identical grammatically to depressed and beloved (both past participles not formed from verbs). i dont know how ok the word is, but i can tell you its nature in grammar.
Yeah I figured it was probably grammatically correct but politically incorrect if you know what I mean? Like the way people say they/them/theirs is incorrect (even tho it isn’t) as a singular pronoun… something like that.
